I have a QNAP TVS-673e with an attached QNAP TR-004 USB 3.1. I need to add an additional expansion device and am currently looking at a QNAP TS-D1600S. On Qnap’s compatibility list it states my nas can only support (2) TR-004, (1) TS-DxxxxS and so on. My question is can I attach both my current TR-004 and a TS-D1600s to the TVS-673e at the same time or are my only options to add a second TR-004 or removing the TR-004 in order to add the TS-D1600s? I’ve done a pretty extensive search but haven’t been able to find out if a USB-C and a Sata device play nice on the same NAS device. Thanks for any info.

Yes, you should be able to connect both at the same time- USB and SATA expansion.

The limits are set based on USB ports and maximum hard drive count in a RAID. This CPU is not made to cope with too big RAIDs.

I hope this helps.
